I'm more interested in your signature banner. How does one go about obtaining that? It's beautiful.

How can this be?

Because with the help of this projects the not-so-average user with a slow machine can decide "hey my computer is also good enough to crunch for THIS or THAT science-project" without asking in the forum.


EXCELLENT point. This is EXACTLY why I use this project.
4) Message boards : Number crunching : Credit per Work Unit lowered (Message 194)
Posted 25 Apr 2010 by Profile skivelitis
I agree Conan. Always hate to see credit go down, but from my point of view, I would almost pay credit for the info this project provides. I am not saavy enough to compile this info on my own. BTW: thanks for this post. hadn't realized the wu length had changed and was about to abort some valid units. Upon further review however, credit will still be 50/day just 2 workunits instead of one. To me this is actully a good thing in case of a bad workunit--only half the daily credit will be lost. Hope the server can handle twice the traffic!

Sorry Saenger for misquoting you about the utility of this project. I misremembered what you said in an earlier post. BTW: dont ever "go away" as someone suggested in an earlier post. Reading your posts in the past has helped me ( and I am sure many others ) tremendously!

Without taking sides or getting in the middle of a big "thing" here , I must say that cheating is an issue at some projects. Milky way for instance just had to redo apps or their credit system or something because people were running scripts to abort lower paying workunits. Myself, I have never understood this. Of course its fun to watch yourself climb up the credit leaderboards, but c'mon people---ITS NOT REAL MONEY!!!! The "credit" is worthless. Edit: Please allow me to add-- I, myself, have asked on the forums about the possibility of running 25 concurrent workunits on this project because I thought at the time that it analyzed data BOINC wide. My understanding now is that it only analyzes data from the hosts upon which it is run. Somebody please clarify this for me if I am wrong. The only thing which I could possibly disagree with Saenger about is that the data/project is worthless (see my post in science section). Perhaps there are many people with the skills to compile the data provided by this project independently, but I for one am not one of them!!
7) Message boards : Number crunching : Plans for expansion? (Message 117)

Does the project, now or at some point in the future, plan to expand to include such thins as credit/wu or credit/hr? I am sure there are other areas as well. The potential seems almost limitless!

Dont give the cheaters any ideas!!! LOL
9) Message boards : Science : WOW!! (Message 107)

Hope my team will soon follow suit. Does the project analyze stats BOINC-wide or only on my own hosts? And does anyone know if there are plans to add something like credit/hr or credit/wu?

After seeing the results page, I understand the project much better. Thanks for the link Saenger.

I am not prone to hyperbole, but this is the GREATEST PROJECT EVER!!!!!!!!!!! I cannot tell you how many times I've posted on numerous forums to get answers to the questions now at my fingertips. As this project matures, it may become as valuable as the stat sites themselves. What a marvelous idea. And we get credit for contributing? The BOINC programmers should have thought of this and implemented it as part of their code from day 1. Proud to be a member and contribute.

So this project analyzes data for other workunits on my own host?

Already do. lol

How do you set to run 25 workunits concurrently?

Posted 4 Apr 2010 by Profile skivelitis
Can multiple workunits be run concurrently and if so how does one go about setting this up?
16) Message boards : Number crunching : Account creation (Message 24)
Posted 29 Mar 2010 by Profile skivelitis
I have tried to attach to this project through the Boinc mgr. and have been unsuccessful. When will account creation be open and w/us available?
